Religious People keep getting atheism wrong

Every day, another religious mouthbreather with a keyboard attempts to find a way to argue the atheistic worldview is antithetical to the welfare of society. It's so painful to read these articles specifically because at no time do any of these morons ever come close to making a valid point. The latest frustration to hit my peepers is an article entitled "Atheists Get Religion All Wrong". This unidentified ...

Orthodox Jews fear unlimited access to knowledge

Imagine holding a rally in a stadium to debate the invention of the printing press. You may as well do so now if you're an Ultra-Orthodox Jew, because apparently, holding one to 'discuss' their official stance on whether or not they should allow themselves to connect with anyone not sharing their limited worldview is growing. Give them credit for understanding the fact having access to unlimited information ...

Waiting for Armageddon

There are days when I want to slap ignorant idiots in the mouth for believing in such dangerous nonsense. How otherwise smart people can believe in this kind of disaster porn is beyond me. It makes it seem as though the task of educating them to accept reality is a wasted effort. With that in mind, enjoy the following documentary entitled "Waiting for Armageddon", which chronicles the deadly beliefs of evan ...

Back to podcasting this week / Mailbag show

After a month spent vagabonding across Canada (I'm currently in Prince-Albert Saskatchewan), I'm happy to announce this week TGA is back to our regular scheduled podcast. It was a hell of a stressful time, but having secured a modest apartment in Calgary with my beloved Carisa, we're now ready to kick-start this bitch into full gear. With that in mind, I thought it might be a good time to get some of you to ...

The wrong kind of skepticism

If you care at all about the human race, it's a moral imperative to detest anti-vaxxers. Here is a group of people desperately trying to undermine what is undoubtedly the most important medical revolution in modern history. The introduction of vaccination has saved countless lives, but because the benefit of vaccinations aren't directly observable, there are still those who refuse to accept their efficacy, ...

Article claims rationality is overrated

I hate it when our commitment to rationality is attacked for no other reason than religiously motivated people feeling slighted from the accusation that rational thought is abrasive to belief. In light of a recent study that found rational thinking diminishes religious faith (at least temporarily), a few mouth-breathers are attempting to argue being rational isn't all it's cracked up to be. It’s misleading ...

Another shitty article about how atheism is a religion (or just as bad as one)

Articles that are critical of religion are divided into two main categories: those that claim atheism is a religion, or those that claim we're just as bad as one. This article differs only slightly from this pathetic formula, accusing us of only focusing on the three big Abrahamic religions and somehow forgetting all of the other peddlers of nonsense. So it rightly criticises creationism and ‘intelligent de ...

Susan Jacoby vs Dinesh D’Souza debate

Got a bunch of spare time to listen to a debate? Odds are if you're trolling TGA, you have plenty of free time on your hands. You may appreciate this debate "Is Christianity Good for America?" While you probably already know the answer to this question, it's always important to know what "the enemy" (I say this in the least vitriolic of terms) is thinking. On our side: Susan Jacoby, who I interviewed a few ...

10% of people think the end of the world is coming

If you were hoping this whole 'Mayan 2012' thing would just blow over and be ignored this year, I've got some bad news for you: it would appear roughly 10% of the population is convinced the end of the world is happening soon. According to a recent poll, one in every 7 people thinks the world will end within their lifetime, while one in every 10 think the Mayans predicted the date it'll happen (despite fail ...

Atheist facing jail time in Indonesia for blasphemy

It's easy to forget the right to express our disbelief is a fairly recent phenomenon. I recognize many fans were angry when I argued Neil DeGrasse Tyson's reaction of the title 'atheist' was an act of intellectual cowardliness, but I voiced my anger precisely because I know how important it is for some to even express their disbelief. The bravery of those willing to stand up for what they believe (or in thi ...
